Mission: To mentor young people in the pursuit of their artistic and aspirational passions in an inclusive community.
Vision: Every young person confidently pursues a future rich with opportunity.
UforChange started in 2009 as a response to the increasing need for youth arts programs in the St. James Town neighbourhood. Since then, UforChange has been mentoring young people in the pursuit of their artistic passions through a spectrum of arts programs and workshops. Our programs are unique in the sense that we provide youth not only with foundational skills, but also access to: professional mentors, industry volunteer and employment opportunities, a sense of community, education support, and more. Initially serving young people from St. James Town, UforChange has grown to serve Regent Park and the Greater Toronto Area.
